Earlier, he accused the Congress party of betraying the people, saying injustice was done to the country's growth potential and its resources.
"Post-independence people trusted the Congress for five decades, but the party betrayed the people. Injustice was meted out to resources and potential of the country. Congress did vote bank politics and made power a medium to fill its coffers," Modi said, at an election rally in Rajasthan's Chittorgarh constituency.
He said smaller nations which got freedom in the same period as when India got its independence had developed far more than India.
